Nestled within a beautiful highland Forest, our Club campsite at Nairn is level and well sheltered and has a rural feel. You might even be lucky enough to spot a red squirrel or two.

There are well maintained facilities, including a laundry and a recreation room with table tennis, also a small site shop. The site’s delightful location offers extensive walking directly into the wood. There is also a great walk to the beach.

The attractive seaside town of Nairn has two Blue Flag beaches and a promenade with fantastic views over the Moray Firth. The town hosts a number of festivals including a Book and Arts Festival, International Jazz Festival and the Highland Feast – a food and drink festival. And in August is hosts Scotland’s only free-entry Highland Games.

Nairn is also a centre of golfing excellence with two 18-hole championship golf courses - the Nairn Golf Club and the Castle Stewart Golf Course which is a regular host of the Scotish open. Within an hour’s drive of the town you can visit Cawdor Castle, Brodie Castle, Culloden Battlefield, Fort George, Clava Stones, Loch Ness, Castle Urquhart, Culbin Forest and the new viewpoint tower, the Cairngorms National Park, Cairngorm Mountain Railway, the Strathspey Steam Railway, Ballindalloch Castle, Elgin Cathedral and the Whisky Trail.

Inverness is 15 miles from the campsite. Here you can explore its old town or enjoy walks along the Caledonian Canal and the River Ness. Or take a boat trip to see the resident bottle-nose dolphins in the Moray Firth.

Very friendly site and all the amenities you need.

This review is for Nairn

Very friendly site and all the amenities you need. It wasn't very busy when we stayed as it was the last weekend they were open before packing up for winter, but that made no difference. Very helpful people running the site. We got a takeaway delivered to site on the Friday night from Nairn, which eased with the cooking. Easy enough to come and go and plenty of local areas to visit. Nairn itself has some beautiful coastal areas, so we really enjoyed it and are planning our next trip back now that they are open again for the year.

This review is for Nairn

Have been using Nairn often for over 20 years, however disappointed to see the 40 year old toilets are still in use. The managers keep them spotless,but they are cold and draughty and well past their sale by date. When visiting sites in the south, toilets are always of a brick construction and up to date.Please give consideration to patrons of Nairn and give us a new toilet block. It is the only thing that detracts from an otherwise excellent site.

This review is for Nairn

Easy to find, easy to access site, with a very warm welcome and lots of help from the managers Dave and Kath. The site is very well kept, nicely situated in trees, with extensive woodland paths, some waymarked. Strangely for Scotland, the midges weren't a problem at all, even given the close proximity to wildlife (lots of birds and red squirrels on site). The toilet block, whilst kept impeccably clean, is looking tired and dated, being of a 'portakabin'-type construction. At least the showers have an on/off tap so you don't keep having to press a button to keep the shower going! The pitches are nicely spaced, and all on sandy, well-drained soil. No real need for rocky ground pegs for the awning here. The weekly visit of the Fish and Chip van was keenly anticipated when we were there, it was very good quality food. There are lots of things to do in the local area, although bicycles/car would be recommended as the site is about 4 miles from Nairn (if you use the footpath rather than walk along the main road). The only major disappointment for us was the amount of road noise from the A96. It is a straight road with a 60mph speed limit, so if there's a noisy motorbike or car travelling at speed, it is most definitely audible on site. As well as the road, one edge of the site backs on to an industrial unit, which seems to start work at 7.30am on weekdays and sometimes at the weekend, so there is the sound of forklifts reversing, hammering, a bell when the phone rings, that sort of thing. If you were at the far end of the site, away from the office, you wouldn't hear this. Overall, a pleasant and enjoyable stay, but don't expect country peace and tranquility as the road noise (for us country dwellers) was too intrusive. C&CC please invest some money in a new toilet/shower block over the winter as this is needed. I would still visit again though, as there are lots of things to do and see in the surrounding area.
